Low inventory brings up question about how long I will need to wait for something very close to what I want---are there regional inventories dealers can draw from and/or dealer swaps or will I need to wait for a car to get built in Germany? Hopefully I will get better feel after driving but now leaning towards 550 xi with just cold weather package. If standard suspension wheel/tire combo is too floaty, my understanding is M Sport for 550 xi does not change suspension (just wheel/tire and appearance) so my only option for more sporty handling would be Dynamic Handling Package?
Correct, you have to add DDC.

Remember you can always order your car and take delivery 6-8 weeks later.
